This, the second of the Tiger & Del series, takes the characters out of the desert and into Del's world. Upon re-reading, this one is not as good as the first one. I think this is in part because it's told through Tiger's eyes, again, and he spends much of the book miserable and cold. More of it, though, is probably due to Del's progressively more detached manner, and the rather annoying way things fall out in the end. I'm also not that fond of Tiger's sword trying to become a character in its own right, because it never would have happened if the Northerners had just followed Tiger's wishes in the first place and given him a plain piece of pointy metal.
